SlideBar 2.2 adds a sliding tab that holds modules to the side of your screen.
Why use a sliding bar? It saves you space on your webpage! Put content highlights inside of it, or weather, or login panes, contact panels, or ... any module at all inside of it to impress your viewers!
SlideBar allows for:
• Customizable themes
• Full CSS3 support (Including shadows, transparency through RGBA, and gradients)
• Retina (HiDPI) support
• Smooth transitions
• Multiple SlideBars

This was released too early. For a start all of the alternative templates produce an error when used. No biggie, I'll make my own, but others will find this a problem.
The documentation is bad. It isn't absent and it does lead you through the process, but I can see that less technically minded people (bear in mind what Joomla! was created for) will give up before they have it installed.
Technically I think it is nearly perfect. I would LOVE to see my content sliding out rather than being revealed, but I'll take this as a free extension. Thanks.
Hello! I am sorry if you have been having trouble with SlideBar. While documentation is sadly unavailable right now (aside from the included "readme.txt"), it will be available within two weeks. For now, please contact me at email@example.com and I would be more than happy to lend a hand in getting SlideBar set up on your site, you may even find it quite useful!
The instructions for this module are exceptionally vague. However, if you wish to place a Module into the slide bar it will be That Modules Position you place in the "Target module position" field of the SlideBar "Configure SlideBar" tab (J!3.0)
I only got this to work the once, but not again - even after clearing, purging and checking in!!!
Hello! Would you mind sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org? I'd be more than happy to help you get SlideBar working again!
